Baggage Handler Locked In Hold Gets Free Dallas-Mexico Trip

Apr 12, 2001

A Dallas/Fort Worth baggage handler won a free but unwanted trip to Mexico after accidentally locking himself in a cargo hold.

The man banged on the walls of the plane as it prepared for take off. Crew members reported hearing a knocking sound and carried out checks before giving the all-clear.

It was only when the plane landed in Puerto Vallarta that the man was discovered.

He was loading luggage for Champion Air at Dallas-Fort-Worth Airport when he became trapped in the pressurized hold.

A spokeswoman for the airline says an investigation has been launched into the incident. The man was unhurt.
